Friday B-Movie Pick: The Wrath of Khan

The Wrath of Khan

Let us set the Way Back Machine to 1982. Yup, 30 years ago, the best Star Trek movie ever was released. This one had the original TOS cast, with Leonard Nimoy directing, a fine looking Kirstie Alley as the Vulcan Lt. Saavik, and Ricardo Montalban as Khan. One of the reasons this movie was so cool was that they took it away from Roddenberry and put in more military style uniforms, and modeled the space battles after Age of Sail naval battles instead of cold war submarine battles. If you grew up on TNG, DS9, or Lord have mercy, Voyager, do yourself a favor and check The Wrath of Khan out.

William Shatner is back!

Ok, William Shatner never really left.  The man best known for his Role as Captain James T. Kirk, of the Starship Enterprise, is 80 years old and still rocking.

He has a new album out, Seeking Major Tom is space themed collection featuring his return to his cool defining cover of the Elton John/Bernie Taupin hit Rocketman.

The people who helped lay down the tracks, complete with bumpers of actual space radio traffic & cuts from Shatner’s version of Major Tom, is amazing. Johnny Winter, Lyle Lovett, Steve Miller, Brad Paisley and Peter Frampton plus a bunch of others.

It really is a fun album, and Shatner’s unique vocal talents stand out on tracks like Mr. Spaceman, Space Cowboy, and She Blinded Me with Science.

Check it out!

Don’t get your hopes up.  I’m guessing this is just a bit of fan artwork.

Sunday SciFi: Star Trek Phase II

I’ve mentioned this group of uber-fans before, but they deserve their own Sunday SciFi post.

Star Trek Phase II is an entirely fan produced continuation of the ST:TOS series.  It’s the brain child of James Cawley, who had a couple of bridge scene cameos in the latest Star Trek movie.

They have produced five (six if you count their first effort that they don’t list at their web site anymore, but I have on DVD) high quality episodes. Some of these episode have been written by ST:TOS writers, and/or have had ST:TOS actors in staring role, and one had a guest starring role by Denise Crosby.

Ok, it’s a “Photoshop” job, but I like it.

Not a problem for me, but just in case your friends are getting a bit geekier than thou, I have the solution.

A Star Trek:TOS communicator that is a functional USB Microphone/Speaker device.

I kid you not nerdlings. You can plug this thing into your computer and use it with Skype and other VoIP apps, if you dare…

Ok, it would be cooler if it had a USB port instead of an attached cable. Perhaps in rev 2.0.
